This will likely cut up given Calder Prince, Gabrial The Tiger and Heir To A Throne were all due to run in the same race here yesterday. But that should make no difference to DAN TROOP (NAP), who romped home by seven lengths over track and trip in July and is taken to defy a hike in the weights. Kenstone has been raised 9lb for a more recent victory over course and distance while King's Pavilion carries 6lb extra for winning at Carlisle during the week with Instant Attraction well beaten in second. Ice Slice won off a higher mark here last season and looks best of the remainder.
